London - The other side of the Thames

You'll be spending most of the time on the other side of the Thames but don't forget to cross one of the bridges and have a look at Southbank and its surrounding neighbourhoods. For example start your walk at Embarkment towards Hangerford Bridge and cross the bridge enjoying the great view. On your right you'll see important sights like London Eye, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey while on your left you'll have Southbank. Your first stop should be the Tate Modern, a great contemporary art museum. Also don't miss the view deck from the 10th floor of the Tate Modern Annex building. After visiting the Tate we continued our walk towards Borough Market. Here you can go wild in terms of street food. It's a must visit when in London. We took the Millennium Bridge to get back to the other side with views of the Tower Bridge and the beautiful St. Pauls cathedral just in front of you. If you're not into walking you can take a boat which goes from Westminster to Tower Bridge'e (Tower Pier station). Click here to see the route map. Closest underground stations: Waterloo, Southwark or London Bridge.
